Thembalethu High will participate in the senior school division of the George Municipal “World of Tomorrow Festival” on the 1 August and will be performing their play set in a family home during loadshedding.
The play explores how your family can save on electricity and how small things such as sharing a bath – can make a difference.
The secondary schools will perform on 1st August at George Arts Theatre in the festival which has been launched as a drama competition for 2019. They will be competing against fellow drama groups from George High, McKinley Reid International School and Rundle College.
